16 Jul, 2010, Atlanta
Cushman & Wakefield's highly experienced Atlanta-based Land Team of Ron Willingham, Matt Hawkins, and Pierce Owings, in partnership with Harvey Gilbert and Bill Lattimore of C&W's Savannah affiliate Gilbert & Lattimore, has brokered the sale of approximately 20,000 acres of raw land along Georgia's picturesque southeastern coast. Engaged toward the end of last year by the Sea Island Company to market this rare opportunity, the Atlanta-based team credits their success to their exclusive focus on land transactions.
